Need some help. I have a Rem 700 Mountain rifle in .280, been a great rifle, and has killed more deer than anything else in my safe. However, each time I find a new nick in the wood stock, it makes me want to change the stock to a synthetic. I really like the Alaskan Ti stocks.....I believe they are made by Bell and Carson. Has anyone purchased and swapped one out? How was the fit?
I have the same rifle in the same caliber. I have been trying like crazy for the last year to find the laminate version of the 700 mountian stock to replace my wood stock as. As far as I can tell, no one makes the stock (laminate or syn) for anything less than a standard contour bbl . Not sure what kind of bedding nightmare that would be. Good luck, and let me know what you find out. FYI, the Alaskan Ti stock may be a HS Precision, but don't quote me.
I have checked the Remington website...its a BC stock. I have also gone to their website (Bell and Carson), and it appears the stock is available for "Mountain rifle". I am going to put a call in and see if I can learn more. I would hate to purchase and find out the barrel is too small for the stock... I guess that is one way to potentially free float!
Here is the last E mail addy I have for him, email@example.com If it doesn't work just do an advance search on this site for Joel Russo. He's a member here and his contact info will be in his profile.
